Night Song
Who will know us then
Grey yellow dying,
Singing in the wind;
Not new flesh and skin
Not a serpent's tooth crying.
Who will know us then
We the makers of men,
Now hollow voices prying,
Singing in the wind.
Don't talk of what has been
Our sin is in denying.
Who will know us then
Know what we have been;
Not a distant bird flying
Singing in the wind.
Let night begin
A single voice sighing,
Who will know us then
Singing in the wind.

This form of poetry came from Italy,and was adopted by the French. The most famous poem in english,using this form is the poem by Dylan Thomas "Go Not Gentle Into That Good Night".

Drop, is this poem about how the world will end up after Bush and his oil buddies get through with it? Sure sounds like it! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
